Experience here is usually great, but this visit was a total mess. Our server had to go AWOL because she was assigned a large party far away from our table. We asked the person that delivered our food for something and he also went AWOL. One of the pieces of chicken on one of the chicken and waffles dinners was tiny and flat. One of the crepes that was suppose to have filling was empty…. Again, restaurant is usually good, but this visit was a total mess in every aspect.

Food and drinks were delicious. Seated by the kitchen door in the corner so there was a higher level of noise and traffic. Took some time to take our 1st drink order but overall it was okay.

Interesting menu. I went for lunch, but it seems that this restaurant is a better choice for breakfast or brunch. Biggest downfall is an overall menu loaded with calories from fat. Hard to find something to satisfy one's hunger if you are watching your weight. And, along this same line, there was not any information on the menu telling you calorie counts for the listings. I tried investigating the calorie count for what I chose on the restaurant's website, and I was still not able to obtain the information. The service I received at the restaurant was admirable.

The mussels mariniere were delicious and our server was excellent. However I was counting on sampling the mussels Pernod, and this was the second time I was told you were out of Pernod. I realize restaurant supply lines are unreliable at this time, but I’d be happy to bring you a bottle!😏

Food was tasty and service was good. Portions were smaller than I had anticipated and the sweet waffles were much more cream than they were waffle especially since it was only 1 small waffle per plate.

First time at Taste of Belgium. The menu was simple but current and the Brunch All Day is a nice option.
Figured I better start with what they are known for-chicken & waffles!
Waffle was delicious-NO syrup needed, but I prefer chicken with the bone. But it was good.
Will definitely return.

I love ToB. Their food and service has always been great. They have plenty of new and local beers on tap. And I really enjoy the atmosphere. The ToB burger is my favorite. And the waffles are amazing.

Food was really good. Couldn’t get a 2nd glass of water and was surprised to have been charged $2 for ice that went with my vodka. Can’t say we’ll be back anytime soon.

Noise level very high. Service great, Ham and brie waffle was very good. Hot Brown waffle a little dry. Mussels good. Mimosas need to be chilled. I do not like room temperature wine, had to add ice cubes. Overall a good dinner and will return.

Allegra, our server was fantastic. she perfectly paces our drinks and meal and provided good guidance. Ask for her and I'm sure you will have a great experience. All four ordered a different thing and allure pleased. Salmon dinner, ham and cheese sandwich, chicken and waffles were all terrific. Of course beer was great.

The entire restaurant was open to the outside. There were cicadas crawling around the restaurant which was concerning. Staff did not seem fazed by this.

The bacon/cheese omelet that I used to enjoy turned into a small little omelet alone on a plate with a small bowl of fruit......almost flavorless

I had not been here for several years and I did not remember the menu being so extensive. The food was excellent and we brought some desserts home for later. I will definitely be going back sooner this time.

Easy reservations on line, server was prompt and accurate and made several great recommendations. We ate outside but under a canopy so it was open air but covered in case of rain. Very pleasant comfortable environment, and the little cheesecakes and macaroons we bought from the bakery on the way out were wonderful!

Tried sitting us outside and I didn’t request that. Then sat us right by the outside. So it was a little chilly. Other than that was awesome. Great service. And great food and drinks.

Went for a late dinner, food was just ok. It was overcooked and cold by the time it was served. They do breakfast/brunch better.

This experience was underwhelming in the warmth and attentiveness of the front of house staff. The hostess was very curt and robotic as she outlined the covid policies immediately after finding my reservation. The front desk was unkempt and the floor sticky- I could hear myself walk and feel the stickiness on my shoes as the hostess strode quickly to table. The server was accommodating and attentive, however those who gathered the desserts I purchased from the bar have a lot of room for improvement. They were grouping too many desserts together in a single box, then handed me the bag to bag myself after I requested an obviously necessary bag for my items. This is a teachable moment- I hope the front of house can use it to welcome back the many patrons that have been away for a year. Not a great showing this time.

Went on a Thursday night for all you can eat mussels. The nice thing is you can try different preparations of the mussels if you wish. It also comes with bread for dipping and frites. Lots of food for $20! We like to sit at the bar, but it was not too crowded and there was plenty of seating and spacing for distance. They have a really wide selection of on tap beers ranging from Belgian to Local. Our bartender was attentive without being intrusive. There are so many good things on the menu that we have tried before - chicken and waffles, beltucky hot-brown, salmon. We will be back soon and make this one of go to places.

I try to be a fan but I am just not. The waffles I end up wuth are alwats very hard. Not sure it is bc they precook them but just anticlimactic.

I just go bc that's where my friends want to go. I make better food at home.
